Winnie-the-Pooh's youngest devotees will delight in these six board-book versions of their favorite Pooh adventures, gathered here in a storybook set as inviting as a box of chocolates.

Visible through acetate windows are unforgettable stories such as Pooh and Some Bees, Eeyore Has a Birthday, and Piglet's Rescue, each gently abridged to suit a preschooler's short attention span and accompanied by Ernest H. Shepard's illustrations in full color. As enduring as Pooh himself, these books are built to last with high-quality board stock, durable binding, and rounded edges-all sweetly housed in a sturdy die-cut tray that provides permanent storage and instant accessibility.

Illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard.

About the author (2003)

A prolific writer, A. A. Milne published 35 plays, 6 novels, 3 books of verse, 3 collections of short stories, and several works of nonfiction, including sketches for Punch magazine, of which he was the assistant editor. Nevertheless, his fame rests on four books for children: two of whimsical stories about the stuffed animals in his son's bedroom (Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner) and two of verse (When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six). All are considered classics and have been included among the Children's Literature Association's Touchstone books as the best in children's literature, on the Lewis Carroll Shelf list, and on the Choice magazine list of books for the academic library. He also wrote Toad of Toad Hall, a play based on Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, and Once upon a Time: A Fairy Tale for Grown-ups, both of which are sometimes included in volumes with the four classic works. Milne had a son, Christopher Robin, who served as the model for the little boy in his children's books.

A. A. Milne was born in 1882 in London. He was a playwright and journalist as well as a poet and storyteller. His classic children's books were inspired by his son, Christopher Robin. Milne died in 1956.
Ernest H. Shepard was born in 1879 in England. His pictures of the Pooh characters are based on real toys owned by Christopher Robin Milne. Shepard died in 1976.
